Netflix Australia Just Released Its Content Plans And It's Pretty Darn Great

It'll be about three small flat whites per month, thanks.

Netflix Australia has finally revealed the hard facts behind its much anticipated local launch confirming the streaming service will start at $8.99/month. It comes as details of the content library were leaked all over Reddit at the weekend.


The $8.99/month price will give you access to standard definition on just one screen. You'll then be able to pay $11.99/month for HD on two separate screens and $14.99/month (marketed as a "family" pack) for 4K quality of four separate screens.

It undercuts local streaming services Presto and Stan (who both got the jump by launching earlier this year) and the Aussie version is slightly more expensive than Netflix US prices.

And what is actually coming to the service? Well...

After intense speculation Netflix confirmed it would have critically acclaimed House of Cards and Orange is the New Black ready for the Aussie launch.


Both are part of the library screenshots that appeared on Imgur over the weekend, showing dozens of original and distributed TV shows and movies. There's also a huge section of Australian and children's content.

One of the biggest concerns for Australian streamers will be churning through data on the higher definition Netflix plans while languishing on woeful telco data packs. Optus and iiNet have announced already they'll give their customers unmetered, unlimited access to the Netflix app.

It all goes live from tomorrow. So prepare for a flurry of sick days.
